Former Man United star Nani says current team has ‘no spirit or sacrifice’ and there are ‘no leaders’ after Red Devils suffer back-to-back 3-0 losses at Old Trafford

Former Premier League winger Nani has claimed this current Man United side has ‘no spirit’ and lacks a leader after they suffered back-to-back 3-0 defeats at Old Trafford last night. 

The Portuguese winger was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2007 after impressing at his first club Sporting CP.

He went on to win four Premier League titles, two League Cups and a Champions League.

However, following United’s shock 3-0 defeat at home to Newcastle last night the 36-year-old – who currently plays for Adana Demirspor – has said this current team is unrecognisable.

Asked what he thought about the team’s cohesion, Nani told B24: ‘When you watch Manchester [United] play, you see there is no spirit of sacrifice, there isn’t that determination.

Nani spent eight years at Man United, winning four Premier Leagues and a Champions League

‘There is not that leading player who says, “We have to win! We have to run with the ball and put it in the back of the net.”‘ 

Earlier this morning, another Man United legend Gary Neville warned Erik ten Hag he could get sacked after overseeing the club’s worst start to a season since the 1962-63 campaign. 

United lost five of their first 10 home games at Old Trafford for the first time since 1930-31. 

‘Last night we saw the Theatre of Dreams turn into the Theatre of Nothing. Every single United fan bored and flat,’ Neville wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

‘On the pitch the players in shock, the performances woeful and a manager struggling in front of our eyes.

‘We’ve seen it before, we know how it ends and we’ve had enough.’
